Volunteers step forward for Alzheimer's Walk

The 2012 Southern Crescent “Walk To End Alzheimer’s” has new volunteer leadership to help guide this event to its successful conclusion on October 6th in Peachtree City.  Sue Shaffer, Chair (left), and Raquel O’Sullivan, Assistant Chair, are joining forces to head up this annual walk sponsored by the Georgia Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.  The Walk was originally organized in 2000 by Peachtree City co-founder Floy Farr, whose wife suffered from Alzheimer’s.  Over the past eleven years the Walk has raised over $2,000,000 to assist those families affected by this terrible disease.  The leaders are in the process of coordinating and enlisting teams of volunteers from seven counties on Atlanta’s south side.  Teams from Clayton, Coweta, Fayette, Fulton, Henry, Meriwether and Spaulding counties will solicit donations from individuals and businesses.  Their efforts culminate with the Walk on October 6th in Peachtree City. 

For additional information or to register a team please contact the event chair by email at alzwalkshaffer@aol.com or visit the website at southernalzwalk.org.  Donations and memorial contributions can be mailed to:  Southern Crescent Walk To End Alzheimer's, PO Box 2144, Peachtree City, GA  30269.
